BBC Player In Malaysia14 Mar 2017
Top Gear, Doctor Who, The Graham Norton Show, David Attenborough’s Natural Curiosities – recognise any of these names? They’re all British Broadcasting Corporation (BBC) programmes and they are now available for Malaysian audiences to watch online, thanks to the launch of the new BBC Player here!
Available in Malaysia free with a Jumbo Pack subscription from IPTV service HyppTV, BBC fans will be able to access selected programmes on their smartphones and tablets from:
- BBC First
- BBC Brit
- BBC Earth
- BBC Lifestyle
- BBC World News
Plus, the latest season of award-winning motoring show Top Gear will also premiere exclusively on BBC Brit through the BBC Player.
Malaysia is only the second country in the world to launch the BBC Player. You can download the app from the Apple App Store, the Google Play Store or from the BBC Player website. New programmes are added every week – some exclusive to the BBC Player – and you can either stream them or download them to watch offline for up to 30 days. Parents will also be able to set parental guidance locks.
Programmes available at launch include SS-GB, Love Nina, Top Gear, Special Forces Ultimate Hell Week, David Attenborough’s Natural Curiosities, Steve Backshall’s Extreme River Challenge, Rachel Khoo’s Kitchen Notebook: Cosmopolitan Cook, Kirstie’s Fill Your House For Free, Go Jetters, My Pet and Me, HARDtalk and The Travel Show.
Do note that anyone can download the BBC Player or visit their website, but only HyppTV customers with a Jumbo Pack subscription will be able to access the content. It should also not be confused with the BBC iPlayer, which is a separate app and will not work in Malaysia.
Setup instructions below:
1. Ensure that you're connected to your Unifi network the first time you access BBC Player on your mobile, tablet and/or computer. This is a one-time authentication for each device/browser you use. You are now successfully signed in, and can use BBC Player anytime, anywhere in Malaysia.
2. Click 'Sign In' (on the website) or 'Sign in with HyppTV' (on the app).
3. Key in your HyppTV ID and password to log in.
4. You will then be able to access brands that are part of the HyppTV Jumbo Pack you're subscribed to.
